I use Dragon NaturallySpeaking for all of my typing and sometimes you get
some very strange, and often humorous, responses when it misunderstands what
you said.

I just had a very funny "speak-o".
I was dictating what Valerie wanted me to call in to the Chinese restaurant.
First, it did not do well with "egg foo Yung", but that wasn't very
Next I tried to say "crab Rangoon" and it understood me to say
"crackbrained". Now I don't know very much about Chinese food, but I
certainly know there's a lot of difference between crab Rangoon and
crackbrained. But, maybe there's some strange connection there...

Thought you guys might find this funny.
